When leaving your precious property in the hands of others it’s not surprising that you may be somewhat concerned. You would seek assurance that the ‘others’ are qualified to look after the property properly. If you want complete peace of mind when parking your car at Gatwick then it’s nice to know that the operator you are using is backed up by legislative bodies that oversee the management and administration of that company. This of course does not make the company perfect but it is an indicator that the company takes its responsibilities seriously and is being professional in its activities. Below you will find some of the Awards that Tudor Rose has achieved and some of the Associations the Company belong to.
Gatwick Airport Approved Operator
This scheme was implemented in July 2013 and was a direct result of a partnership between West Sussex County Council, The Police, Trading Standards and the British Parking Association in an attempt to curb the bad practice and rogue element of Valet Parking at Gatwick. Companies which are awarded approval status have to prove they can provide a good level of professionalism and service.
Meaning the Customer can spend more time enjoying their travel plans and less time worrying about their car.

The Safer Parking Scheme and the Park Mark® award
Park Mark® Safer Parking facilities have been vetted by the police and have quality management, appropriate lighting and security measures, effective surveillance and a clean environment. The Park Mark® Safer Parking Scheme is an initiative of the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO/S) and is aimed at reducing both crime and the fear of crime in parking facilities. Today, around 20% of all crime in the UK is vehicle related. Although vehicle related crime has come down by about a third since 1997, we want to bring the number of crime incidents in car parking environments down even further to ensure you and your vehicle are safe in the UK’s car parks. The Park Mark Safer Parking Scheme works with car park operators to ensure they of a good standard, providing a safe environment and reducing the fear of crime. Nick Ross has talked about the ‘Chemistry of Crime’ and the benefits of selecting a Park Mark accredited car park when choosing where to park on Crimewatch. http://www.britishparking.co.uk/How-to-choose-Safer-Parking
AVPCA – Airport Valet Parking Contractors Association
The AVPCA was formed in the spring of 2011 with the aim to create public awareness of the meet and greet operators at Gatwick Airport offering cut price meet and greet parking but without offering secured parking or acceptable levels of customer service. The AVPCA has been working with local Trading Standards officers, Gatwick Airport Ltd, local police, independent and established meet and greet parking operators at Gatwick.
